Crown Princess Mary of Denmark has Covid-19, according to a statement released by the Danish Royal family on their official website Kongehuset.
The statement outlines that the Australian-born Princess was tested on Wednesday, December 15, and has returned a positive result.
“Her Royal Highness is staying in isolation at Frederik VIII’s Palace at Amalienborg. There is no indication that others in the family are infected,” the statement read.
“In connection with the test result, the Royal House of Denmark is receiving advice from the Danish Patient Safety Authority concerning detection of infection.
“The Crown Princess will remain in isolation until it is once again safe to end the isolation according to the applicable guidelines.” This means Princess Mary may be facing a Christmas by herself.
Her Royal Highness’s positive result comes just as cases in Denmark surge, forcing a reintroduction of many of Denmark’s many Covid-19 based restrictions. The daily number of new infections on Tuesday, December 14 was 8,314; while the 7-day average was 6,846.
The Australian Government website Smart Traveller advises that anyone entering Denmark should “exercise a high degree of caution” due to the many impacts of this latest Covid-19 case surge.
The statement was posted to the Royal Instagram account @detdanskekongehus.
